Neither did I !
I have just read an interesting article online about this very subject and wanted to share it with you.
The article was on BBC online in September 2009 and reported the results of a study of 8,500 couples carried out by Bristol University.
The research study , published in the Journal of Fertility and Sterility found that a non-smoking woman exposed to smoke in the workplace was 14% less likely to be able to conceive within a year.
If her partner smokes more than 20 cigarettes a day, the odds of delayed conception were 34%.
We have long known that smoking can affect fertility in both males and females but this research is the first to suggest that even passive smoking can affect female fertility.
